    Wonderful small place that is owned and run by a husband/wife Team. I love that the owners were present and serving us. You can tell that they take pride in their restaurant. The food was fantastic! Wine options are available but there are no cocktails, which threw us for a loop. Overall, I’d absolutely recommend Goosefoot to anyone enjoys fine dining.

    It was a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary and Nina especially is friendly and personable. You can tell she and Chris really care about the diner's experience! I loved the Woodstock theme and it truly felt like every course told its own beautiful story. I will say one extremely unfortunate mishap was that the first course had a very tasty corn soup that literally burnt our tongues, it was piping hot to the point that my husband instinctually spit it back out into the cup. When the first course came out, we actually both had to use the restroom so we even let it sit for ~3mins before eating it and it was still burning hot so I'm concerned that it would've been even hotter if we hadn't let it sit for a few mins! This would've been unfortunate at any point in our dinner but the first course burning our tongues was tough because it was obviously harder to taste the rest of the food.

    Can't recommend more. Fine dining that pays attention to taste of dishes rather than the entire experience. Rather than experimental dishes, the quality of each course is phenomenal. Highly recommend if you can make a reservation.

    My wife and I celebrated my 40th birthday here. Really excited that we did. The service was top-notch. Lots of attention to the table setting, ambience and Covid protocols. The food was delicious with plenty of little surprises - great combination of flavors and textures. The wine available from their store was very affordable and tasty. Nina and Chris provided a memorable experience.

    What a lovely and memorable experience we had a Goosefoot. Yes, it is expensive but, it was worth every penny we paid. The service, the presentation, the absolutely delicious meal was simply divine. Creative, non-pretentious, unique and over-the-top all rolled into one. We will definitely be seeking reservations again, albeit for a special occasion.

    Amazing food, presentation, and service. Very unique decor in an intimate setting. BYOB aspect is a great option if you have strong wine preferences, but their near-retail priced wine selection has a good variety of pairing options along with half bottles. A real gem for tasting menu type restaurants. Nina and Chris are rockstars!

    Consistently, Goosefoot is one of the best restaurants in Chicago. The passion of Chris and Nina for outstanding food and service is evident in every little step they take, from the wonderful and playful menu to the interesting and diverse food. Chris is a fantastic chef, highly creative, and thoughtful in presentations. His creativeness with desserts is also exceptional. Nina, as front of house, is warm, friendly and always kind. Natalia is a gem and supports the overall friendly vibe of the restaurant. Goosefoot is such a unique restaurant and always a fantastic experience.
